Good morning.

The best way to describe what is coming down at the moment is 'wet sleet', I reckon. Looks like forecasts are saying we will get proper rain later on. Maybe heavy rain. Obviously, that's not great.

There's some windy conditions as well apparently and that is affecting some lifts at the start of the morning including the Yakebitaiyama Number 2 gondola and Okushiga Kogen gondola.

But not to fear! (Well, not too much)... snow is due later and I might have some to report tomorrow with more into the middle of the week.
